Have no idea why I watched this wish I hadn't. This is really just piled together news clips with some voice over.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible & Unprofessional, August 19, 2014
If I could give negative stars I would. The film making is horrible, but that the least of this films concern. It attempts to push their agenda within the commentary and interview process to the viewers. I really enjoy watching documentaries, but I prefer the makers to make unbiased remarks and speak about facts.

1.0 out of 5 stars A thinnly veiled agenda, February 26, 2005
This review is from: How Arnold Won the West (DVD)
I was tremendously disapointed with this documentary. This seems to be a sad trend in documentary making in the Michael Moore era, where the filmaker uses deceptive and manipulative tactics to paint there subject as deceptive and manipulative. You want to hear people talking about the flaws of Gray Davis? The filmaker felt the best example would be an Elvis impersonator and a guy who poses for pictures as Spider-man. A few minutes after describing how spin doctors discredit the source of opposition to Arnolds agenda, they attempt to discredit the man who spearheaded the movement for the recall by stressing his BROTHERS crimminal record. There is also surprisingly little information about the deeply flawed record of Davis that spawned a re-call to begin with. They seemed to much rather show him as a victim, as the David vs Goliath, ignoring that he was infact a Governor of California (which may make the David comparison break down).

Above all else, this Brittish movie loves to portray the American voter as a blind sheep to awe struck to think critically and too stupid or lazy to make intelligent decisions. As a matter of fact, she's banking on it, for you'd need to be stupid and lazy to not see through her thinnly veiled agenda.
